I am in a huge dilemma, please help me figure out what to do with our current situation. My husband was driving my motorcycle namely Yamaha SZDE91 along Marigman St. in Antipolo City. While driving with full caution my husband was able to bump a pedestrian who's trying to cross the street yet changed his mind and went back. As a diligent driver, my husband tried to avoid hitting a man yet for some stroke of luck, he decided to go back thus the accident. My husband tried his best to avoid hitting him but of no avail.
Upon bumping into the said man my husband incurred injuries himself, yet he was able to pick the man up and take him to his godfather’s house as he requested. Then my husband went back home to pick me up. We went back to the place where my husband left the man and take him to the hospital to have him checked.
Then two traffic enforcer came and escorted my husband to the police station. While my husband was giving his statement as to what happen, the man's wife came and demanded for the motorcycle. To my husband shame, he went back home and drove the vehicle although he cannot barely do so. The man's wife asked the police to take the motor into their custody. With pure intentions my husband surrendered the same together with his license and all the documents that comes along with them.
They went back to the hospital after, then the wife demanded 5000 PHP from us and asked us to pay for her husband’s daily rate for the days that he will be out of the office because of the injury. We pleaded and we agreed that we will pay them 500PHP for each day that the man will be not able to go to work.
A day after we tried to contact the victim yet we did not get any response. We went to the police station and the investigator that handles our concern is apathetic to our plea. All we want is to settle this dispute and get our motorcycle that we need to go to work every day. Most of the time it does sound like that the investigator is asking us to bribe him. We are now at the brink of desperation and would really want to get this over with. We are pleading for your help. Any help would suffice, I just need to know what to do.
In my opinion, you should be hiring a good attorney as only he can help you out. My uncle has been working with one of top DUI lawyer and he mentioned me that it’s quite impossible to win such cases without help of a good attorney.
